A great adventure lies in your wake. Those that haven't made the purchase yet are in for a treat with Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and we hope that there are many of you out there on your journey as I write this!
These games have been highly praised, essentially giving fans of the world an opportunity to play a new Pokemon game. There are so many new things to discover in this world that weren't available in the previous versions! If you've been on the fence about throwing your money down on the counter for one of these, then please hop off it and join us in the land of Pokemon!
Something that I'm currently in love with outside of the games themselves though, is the fan community around it. Oh yes, people on the internet can be seriously funny. If you haven't seen their reactions to IGN, you are in for a laugh!

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire & IGN
IGN came out and interviewed Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, as they are known to do from time to time, but something rather hilarious stemmed from their review. As we all know they list a series of pros and cons in the summaries of their reviews, well this game has a strange mention.
Everything seems to be in order here, digging the layout, not a bad review score 7.8, said its gorgeous, with some great updates, too much water...wait what? "Too much water"?! What kind of statement is that to make in a professional review? Sounds like she was compelled to give this game a low score but couldn't think of any cons.
Naturally, gamers saw this and went "Ohhh yes, it's commenting time!". A field day was had. Within 24 hours the article received over 5,800 comments!!!! The article was subsequently linked to a variety of Pokemon gaming communities and video game forums, including three separate posts on Reddit’s as well as GameFAQs, Bungie and 4chan’s Pokemon forums. The IGN review also prompted dozens of satirical posts on YouTube and Tumblr.
Wanna see some of them? Of course you do! Internet people, I do love you!
It's actually remarkable how quickly people throw some of these together to post on the IGN review page. Of course, they have received a serious following. A much as I enjoy this picture above (makes me think we need a 'wy u du dis Igen' one), the two that follow it are beautiful.
How is this thing getting so much attention?! I mean hear I am fuelling the fire writing an article about it! I just love the gaming community. Let's face it, we got some people out there that love to hate on reviews like this and spout there extremely volatile opinions all over sites that mention games. But then you get people like this that just wanna laugh and slag you off. Priceless.
But while it may seem like a small effort to throw a picture as simple as this together, this guy went all out and threw IGN's comment onto a load of other titles in this great little video. Enjoy folks! And if you know of any other "Too much water" comments, pictures or videos, be sure to let us know!
